New Wells® TPS Sensors For Dodge Diesel Trucks Eliminate Wear Issues, Reduce Repair Costs

Long-Life Non-Contact Sensors Offered Without Unnecessary, Expensive Replacement   Mounting Bracket for Ram 2500 and 3500 Models

Fond du Lac, WI, July 20, 2011...Wells Vehicle Electronics® has introduced two better-than-OE non-contact throttle position sensors that eliminate wear issues and significantly reduce repair costs on Dodge Ram 2500 and 3500 diesel trucks.

The new Wells TPS sensors, now available for 1998-2007 Ram 2500 and 3500 models (Wells TPS346/ TPS347), feature problem-solving “Hall Effect” integrated circuitry that eliminates the wear-intensive contact associated with the OE parts and aftermarket alternatives.

Repetitive motion of the contact fingers across the resistor board on conventional sensors can wear holes in the board, causing engine hesitation. The new Wells parts’ innovative design eliminates this contact and is also significantly more resistant to shock and vibration.

Unlike competing sensors – including those offered by Dodge dealers – the new Wells TPS sensors are sold without the expensive, and rarely needed, mounting bracket.

“A replacement mounting bracket is absolutely not needed in nearly all of these repairs, and it adds significantly to the cost of the parts sourced through dealers or other aftermarket suppliers,” said Glen Eichhorn, vice president, electronics, Wells Vehicle Electronics. “By choosing Wells, repair professionals can offer a better-than-OE alternative that also costs significantly less.”

Wells Vehicle Electronics is one of the world’s leading brands of replacement sensors and other vehicle electronics. Wells specializes in identifying problematic applications that demand the latest and most reliable technologies. Some of these “Wells Advantage” solutions include throttle position, DPFE, cam, EGR position, and ABS wheel speed sensors that correct OE design failures, providing significantly improved performance and reliability.
